Define the term TCP/IP.
TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol. It is the communication protocol for the internet.
- It is a set of standardised rules that uses a client-server model of communication in which a user or machine requests a service by a server in the network.
- The IP protocol ensures that each computer or node connected to the Internet is assigned an IP address , which is used to identify each node independently.
- TCP guarantees the delivery of packets to the designated IP address. It is also responsible for ordering the packets so that they are delivered in sequence.
